Buffalo 6, Lehigh Valley 4

Dillon Gee had another rough outing in Buffalo today, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits in 4 innings, but the Bisons bullpen turned in 5 innings of 1 hit shutout relief, allowing the much maligned offense a chance to come back, which they did on this morning.

The offense had 11 hits and a walk, going 3 for 10 with RISP and leaving 5 men on base. Cory Sullivan, Robinson Cancel and Argenis Reyes had multi hit games, while Jose Coronado (0 for 2, K, .139) and Jesus Feliciano (0 for 3, .300) took 0-fers. Bison pinch hitters were 0 for 4 in the game.

Binghamton 9, Portland 7
